The Spirit Of Truth Is Power: Reviving Faith In Jesus Christ by Joan Jessalyn Cox is a book that explores the truth about the message of Jesus in the Bible, not a sentimental approach to the truth, but one that allows readers to seek the paths of God in honesty and sincerity of heart. In the author’s words, it is about “Truth that is scripturally verified; Truth that is sound in Holy Spirit revelation; and Truth that should be prayerfully received.” This is an inspirational book that comes across as a gift to be received in faith.
As I read through these pages, I felt inspired, admonished, and greatly encouraged to continue on the path of seeking God’s truth. I didn’t doubt for a moment that Joan Jessalyn Cox has a wonderful gift of faith and that she communicates it with simplicity and authority. Her writing is infused with the knowledge and wisdom of one who has listened attentively to the word of God and who tries to translate it into their life. She makes ample use of scriptural references, helping the reader discover the hidden life that flows through the scriptures, and unveiling truths that readers will love to contemplate, embrace, and use to transform their lives. The writing is friendly and the core message of the book can’t be mistaken. The Spirit Of Truth Is Power: Reviving Faith In Jesus Christ is a powerful book, a reflection that readers need, especially in this day and age when what arrests our attention most are falsehoods crafted by the media to manipulate readers.
